Dinnerware Samples

Some new dinnerware samples ready to go into the kiln. They are decorated with layered glazes, wax and sgraffito techniques. These will be delivered to a friend/student of mine who is opening her new interior design studio this week, Mouse in the House Interiors in Mundelein, IL.

Bionic Finger

Tomorrow is surgery day for my broken finger. I'm not necessarily looking forward to the process and the pain of healing, but I am very excited to finally have a fairly definite timeline as to when my finger will be functional again. It's been 7 months from the accident, and I haven't been able to use my finger tip the entire time! So it will be nice to be whole again in a few more weeks.

Goodbye, Old Friend.

I've been using the same porcelain bowl for my throwing water since 1997, and today it finally broke. To get back at me, it left a small shard in my splash pan that cut my finger when I was cleaning it out. Payback's a bitch, as they say. But now I have an excuse to throw some bowls....


Lidded jar base. About 16" tall, 15 pounds of porcelain.
